Burning Man Festival canceled again due to coronavirus

The organizers referred to too many unresolved issues.

Organizers of the annual summer counterculture festival Burning Man announced the cancellation of the event in the Nevada desert for the second time in a row due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The San Francisco-based band posted a video on their website saying that there are still too many uncertainties that need to be resolved. The festival can be held as planned, from August 26 to September 3 in the Black Rock Desert, 160 kilometers from the city of Reno.

Festival director Marian Goodell said the “difficult decision” was based on the “best information” available to the organizers.

The festival, which was born 35 years ago, annually attracted up to 80 thousand people to the desert.
